    1870 Aluminum Quarter Eagle
    Judd-1027, PR64 Cameo

    1870 $2.50 Quarter Eagle, Judd-1027, Pollock-1162, R.8, PR64 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A dies trial strike featuring the regular-issue Liberty Head quarter eagle dies for the year 1870. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. suggests these off-metal strikings were produced for sale to collectors. Apparently, few were sold. According to, " ... with fewer than 3 known including one in the Simpson collection." Regardless of the composition struck in, these dies trial strikes are all rare. Only a half dozen copper pieces are known, and there is a single example in nickel. As one would expect from an aluminum strike, the fields display exceptionally deep reflectivity with starkly contrasting frosted devices. A vertical planchet lamination is located in the right obverse field.
